Lydia Adams and Su-Ji Cho, graduating seniors in Psychology and Neuroscience, are the recipients of the 2023 Dashiell-Thurstone Prize.

The Dashiell-Thurstone Prize is awarded each year for the best senior honors thesis, as judged by a faculty committee. This award is named in memory of two significant figures in the life of the Department of Psychology: John Dashiell, who founded the Department in 1920, and Leon Thurstone, who founded the Psychometric Research Laboratory in 1953, which later became a significant component of the Department.

The psychology award went to Lydia, working with her mentors Drs. Jon Abramowitz and Don. Lysle, won for her outstanding senior honors thesis about MDMA Administration Attenuates Hippocampal IL-B Immunoreativity and Subsequent Stress-Enhanced Fear Learning. The neuroscience award went to Su-Ji, working with her mentors, Drs. Monica Gaudier-Diaz, and Eva Anton, won for her outstanding senior honors thesis studying the Connectome of Neuronal Primary Cilia in the Human Cerebral Cortex. Lydia and Su-Ji were honored at the Psychology and Neuroscience Commencement Ceremony on May 14, 2023.
